We have a solution

It's amazing that things always work out. My dad was supposed to be flying into Grand Praire today but instead I re-booked his flight and he is now flying into Prince George. From there he is going to drive the U-haul up here. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you Dad! We so appreciate it.

Ontop of all that we all have colds. John went to work today, which is great except we didn't have a great night sleep. The air is very dry here, so our throats are very dry and sore. Thank goodness for the humidifier we have in the girls' room.

Today is going to be hectic, I am just trying to pack up the last few things and go on the hunt for more boxes. I have done a lot of the cleaning which is good cause we are running out of time. Yeah!! This will be my last post until I get home. Funny thing cause this is Post #99, I can't believe I have posted that many times. Hope everyone has a great week.

What Luck

Well, I thought our move was going pretty well until I decided to check on our U-haul rental. There are no trucks available in Fort St John or anywhere else for that matter. The closest would be Prince George. Half way home!!!!! I just have to vent, cause it never fails. I know a year from today it won't matter but right now it does.

No one at U-Haul told us about this two weeks ago when I made the reservation, and they are not concerned about it at all. THe lady here at Fort St John said she had 15 calls for trucks today. I can't understand why they wouldn bring trucks up North. Everyone is trying to move away from this muddy dirty place (can't blaim them). Can you tell I am a bit bitter. I can't wait for green grass and spring.

Wow I am impressed!

Beth got it right. It is the guy on the Canadian Tire money. John was playing around with my new Whale of a punch, and he punched him out of a 5 cent canadian tire bill. He thought it would be fun to see if anyone would recognize him and then a person from Whales recognizes him. We are very impressed. Hope everyone has a great day.

More snow and cold...

I don't know when this is going to end. Again for the past few mornings we are waking up with more snow. We are supposed to be going toboganning with Vayda's class this afternoon. But this morning it was -17 with a windchill of -26. Yikes. It is supposed to warm up to -6, but with that windchill it is so much colder than that.

We are pretty much counting down the days here. I will be so glad to be back home in the Okanagan, where I heard the other day it was 15 above. When I told Vayda that it was -17 this morning she said "that's not so bad Mom" I guess we are really used to the cold.

We aren't sure of the exact date when we will be moving but it can't come soon enough. Eventhough I have met two really nice ladies with kids the exact same age as our girls, and I know our girls are going to miss them so much. I can't wait to have coffe at the park with everyone back home. Yeah!!!!

It sure isn't the same as the Okanagan. I can't wait to go for a nice walk and a bike ride. Maybe go for a hike or go camping in the woods. I can't wait to be able to go to the grocery store and get what ever I need and more. A bakery would be nice, since there are only Grocery store bakery's. To have Costco only a short drive away is going to be heavenly, and ofcourse the Mediteranean Market. But most of all I am excited about being back with all of my friends and family, and to be able to enjoy our property.

One of the things that I have learned up here, is that there is no need to go shopping all of the time. We used to buy things for our girls here and there and we would buy things that we really didn't need. My prove was when I donated a bunch of toys to the free store at the Alliance Church yesterday - toys they didn't play with anyways. We have learned to really make our money last and not spend when we don't need. Our girls have learned it as well, cause we can now go to Wal-mart and they don't even ask to go the toy section. They have been so good with not asking us for anything. We are so proud of them. Vayda even wants to give us her money so it can help build our house.

Guess what is just stopped snowing!!! Finally I get to go and shovel the drive way again. Everytime I shovel, I think this may be the last time I shovel this year. Maybe today will be the last day, keeping my fingers crossed.

I read this last night, and it made me feel really good.

"You are so much more than you think you are!
Admit it:
Sometimes you compare yourself to others and feel like you fall short. But you are far more capable, beautiful, compassionate and gifted than you give yourself credit for. In fact, you're the kind of person other people think "wow" about! Face it: You're wonderful!"

Hope everyone has a great day. I made a mistake it is still snowing. Blah!

Today our Baby turned 3

I can't believe how fast these past three years have flown by. Tessa is our baby and now she is already a preschooler. Tessa is such a special and funny little girl. She makes us laugh everyday. She is smart and cute and has her own opinion about everything. Her favourite saying is "no, I do it myself". She is grown up in so many ways since she is always trying to keep up with her sister. For the longest time I would aks her how old she was and her answer would be "six" (like Vayda). Today we have gymnastics and we are going to see a drama presentation at the Cultural Centre. We are going out for dinner to "Pizza Boston". Happy 3rd Birthday my sweet girl, hope all your dreams come true.
